Night in Dimdum land

When at night, and  Dimdum people sleep,

the elephant and the little dog

go out and about to have some  fun

Of course this can’t be done

when it is light!

As there is a golden rule in Dimdum land that says:

Elephants  and dogs can’t play together!

No! No way! That can’t be right!

It really is  a serious matter!

The King has said it is a crime,

The minister, the duke, the pope

all say: “Keep them creatures  on a rope!”

But nothing can be done about it

When it is night in Dimdum land

There they go play in the sand

As no one can keep friends  apart

Not when the night still has a heart…
